Preparation for the day begins

March 31, 9 a.m. 

This morning we see about 15 people making flower garlands inside the temple. They are seated inside the temple's mandap and are preparing garlands for the days' vahanam. Delhi Babu is the person who is in-charge here.
Behind them were few people rubbing Neem oil to the poles used for carrying the vahanams.
The vahanams that is to be used in the coming days were being cleaned. 
Many foreigners were taking photographs and speaking to people about the importance of this festival.
Activities outside the temple had also increased. Many hawkers set up their wares on the road. Many pandals for food and drinks were also set up.
